NHS Providers has today published a guide for NHS trust board members outlining their role in reducing health inequalities – supporting their overall aim for health inequalities to be viewed as part of core board business.

The guide outlines why trusts should act on health  inequalities, includes a vision for what good looks like, a self-assessment tool for trusts to use to determine where they are in their journey and a list of suggested objectives for board members (divided by the different roles within NHS boards).

The objectives are drawn from NHSE policy and guidance documents relating to health inequalities, and from existing good practice within the sector.
